Welcome to the Best of Denali

Situated on Carlo Creek in the heart of the Alaska Range, Denali Hostel & Cabins (previously known as Denali Mountain Morning Hostel) offers you a truly special experience at an affordable price. Our charming, hand-built cabins and dorms are nestled in a beautiful forest with a sparkling creek running through it. During mid-summer, the fireweed flowers spring up over your head, baby moose may be seen trotting through the woods, and the Midnight Sun will compel you to watch the alpenglow turn the mountains & clouds pink.


Just a short, 15-minute drive gets you to the entrance of Denali National Park, where endless wilderness, scenic beauty, and adventures await. Our mission is to help you have the best experience possible during your stay in Denali. Our staff is highly knowledgeable about the area and can help you select the best tours and activities to fit your interests, time, and budget – in fact, we offer discounted prices on all tours which are even lower than booking directly with the tour operator.


After an adventure-filled day spent exploring Denali National Park, come and relax in one of our cozy cabins, re-fuel in our kitchen and lounge, mingle with fellow travelers, and kick back around the campfire in the evening. Enjoy spectacular mountain views, wake to the soothing sounds of Carlo Creek, and stage your Denali National Park activities with all the comforts of home.


We are passionate about Denali and we love to share this special place with visitors. Let us help make your visit to Alaska the experience of a lifetime!
